Default Fire Fair

Not sure how well this has been publicised, if at all, but tomorrow (16 October) is the first Fira del Foc (fire fair) in Pollensa town. From 8 in the evening till well into the morning. Fire runs, demons, music, the whole lot.

I saw something but it was a new one on me - presume its first year as I dont think I have seen it advertised before - sounds like a version of San Antonio fiestas in which case wow, it could be fun!! Anyone know anymore???

Andrew Ede has written a brilliant blog about this today - see alcudiapollensa: Foc You: Event publicity & sums up my frustration at the lack of event promotion entirely - although I'm afraid I'm not as articulate as he is. Do read it!

Try searching for Pollenca Mallorca inn the search box at the top of the Facebook page - they come up as a person and the photos were posted this morning. Hope it works

I had no problem at all but it may be because Pollenca Mallorca is one of my friends.
